    Family Locator and GPS Tracker's review

    Published: 2014-05-12, by Peter Warrior.

    Turn your phone into a HQ to check all GPS linked devices

    • Clean and useful interface
    • Easy to learn and use
    • Obvious increase of battery usage

    "Offspring, assemble!"

    There are many ways to make use of the internal GPS all smartphones have, and many manufacturers include GPS tracking as an built-in option if you take the time to turn it on. However, when you have to look after a group of individuals, a family, a boy scout troop, a group of fellows or whatever, things get a little bit more complicated.

    That's where Family GPS Tracker shows up. First off, you have to install it in your device and send "invitations" to those you care about (keep in mind at all times that you can never ever install anything in somebody else's device without his or her consent). Then, your device will work as a central HQ, receiving data from all the linked devices and positioning them on a map.

    In case that isn't enough for your serenity, the app includes an option to mark out green and red zones and receive a warning when someone leaves the former or enters the latter (as in "tell me when she reaches grandad's" or "warn me if he goes to the park"). As this app takes a little bit of extra battery, an energy bar is added to every member so you can know their battery levels at a glance. In-group messaging also works as a SOS widget (great for older folks).

    User interface is clean and useful without whimsical flourishes that would only distract you from what you're currently doing. It's very easy to use.

    It's the closest thing to that Harry Potter clock at the Weasley's, if you know what I mean. We can only ask for some Minority Report-like features yet to be invented (voice recognition anyone?) or other minor features.
